How To Care For Your Christian Louboutin Sneakers
When it comes to keeping your sneakers cleaner for longer, we would advise using a dry soft cloth to wipe away superficial marks on leather styles. You can also use a specialist leather, suede or fabric cleaner dependent on the material of the sneaker.
Store them properly in the dust bag provided and in the branded box, keeping them away from light and heat. It is worth noting that the red lacquer of the soles will wear show signs of normal wear and tear with use.
